Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, from the brewery, 23/08/13. Hazed golden with a good sized off white head. Nose is orange, grass, toasted malts, light pine, grapefruit. Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, hops, toasted malts, light mineral notes, grass. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with light hop bitterness. Solid drinkable APA but not a patch on some of the recent APA’s that have come out of the Kernel!

RichardW (1551) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
50cl bottle. Yeasty orange flavour, slightly murky, doesn’t have the hop hit you come to expect. Lemon biscuit finish, bit disappointing

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle from Kernel. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The nose is pine, creamy, tangerine, apricot, dried mango and fruit salad sweets. The taste is crisp, creamy malt, pine, tangerine, orange, white grape and grass with a dry, light citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Clean, easy-going and very, very drinkable. Great stuff!

JohnRMurdoch (3412) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2013
330ml bottles from Alesbymail. Hazy amber brown, not much head. Strong pine hop aroma. Pine hop aroma. Biscuit citrus hop flavour. Watery with orange aftertaste. Good but far from Kernel’s best.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of grass, strong herbal notes and pineapple. Flavour of strong herbal and grassy hops, slightly harsh grainy malts, pine, pineapple, caramel sweetness and surprisingly strong minerals. Has certain elements which are common on German hops. Medium bodied, harsh and maybe a bit too carbonated mouthfeel with a bitter, herbal, mineral finish. Good, but not as good as their best APAs.
